Trump's tweets are also a concern, according to the survey, with 67 percent of Americans saying they disapprove of his use of Twitter.

Nearly half of the USA population, 48 percent, thinks the country's standing in the world has deteriorated with the Trump presidency, while 27 percent say the country's standing is stronger.

The approval rating for Trump, who approaches six months in office, is lower than that of any of his predecessors in 70 years, Xinhua reported.

Besides, it also showed that 48 percent of the respondents see the United States leadership in the world as weaker since Trump's inauguration, with only 27 percent believing it to be stronger.

Americans rate Trump lower on personality than on issues by six points.

The president's job approval rating looks quite different in the counties that propelled him to victory a year ago, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Bennett further ruled out the possibility of Trump's impeachment in Congress, noting that the attempt will not succeed, because opponents are lacking strong arguments and they "cannot have an impeachment of a president without high crimes and misdemeanors".

He has two years left on his current contract at $14.1 million this coming season, and $14.8 million in the 2018-19 season. The deal was reported by the Associated Press just minutes after free agency's official 11 p.m. central start time.

Start off with the 36 percent of Americans who approve of Trump.

But, Sunday morning, Mr. Trump thanked his supporters and accused so-called fake news media of scorning his son.

Trump boasted of his deal-making abilities on the campaign trail, but majorities also did not back Trump in negotiations with foreign leaders-in particular Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom Trump met face-to-face for the first time at a recent G20 summit in Germany.

His disapproval rating has risen five points to 58 per cent. Half of Americans preferred Obamacare to the proposals the Republicans have drawn up to replace it. Meanwhile, fewer than 4 in 10 say the Democratic Party now stands for something, while a slight majority say it "just stands against Trump". "If Trump's at 36% approve/58% disapprove, with 32% approval among independents, GOP won't hold the House", Bill Kristol, a Republican pundit and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard conservative news magazine tweeted on Sunday. Meanwhile, 85 percent of Democrats disapprove of Trump, but a larger 75 percent disapprove strongly.

Another said: "And he's not even at 40 percent in the poll!".

The Post-ABC poll was conducted July 10-13 among a random national sample of 1001 adults reached on mobile and landline phones.
